Snow report: 23″ total at Loveland, with 2″ in the past day and it’s falling.

Summit Daily field report: Opening day was chilly in the morning and gorgeous in the afternoon. Opening weekend shouldbe about the same.

Weather: N/A

Lift lines: Typical opening day crowds. Expect to wait 5-15 minutes.

Breakdown: Loveland did it right for opening day. Nate Dogggg recorded his 20th consecutive first chair and the snow was a nice combo of manmade and natural. Look for the A-Basin recap this weekend.
